Walking the Coastline of Shetland - Round Northmavine Trek

Shetland Islands

180 km / 112 miles
This walk around the largest parish in Shetland excels in wild rock scenery. Although part of Mainland, Shetland's largest island, Northmavine is almost an island itself as the neck of land connecting it is only 100 yards across. The route includes Shetland's highest hill, Ronas Hill (1,486ft), and visits Urafirth, Hillswick, Stenness, Hamnavoe, Swinister, Lang Clodie Wick, Sandvoe, North Roe and Ollaberry. The publication also includes a number of circular walks from 4 to 15 miles.

Mavis Grind also marks the start of the Westside Way and the end of the Eastside Way.
